easy is the SnowSport™ Plow to hook up or un-hook between
It's very easy. Just insert the push frame into the front receiver
hitch and secure with pin. Then hang the blade one end at a time
onto the push frame (can be done in less than a minute). Un-hooking
is just as easy.
do you switch from transporting to plowing or from plowing to transporting?
The operator must manually unhook the plow and lower it for plowing.
For transporting, simply lift the blade one side at a time onto
the push frame.
can the SnowSport™ Plow operate without hydraulics?
The blade is secured by the push frame. As you push the snow, the
blade travels up and down as needed by gravity. The rubber cutting
edge is designed to cut through the snow, but pass over the harder
ground surfaces below and be gentle on grass. When you back up,
the blade automatically lays back, skimming over the surface. Then
you drive forward and the blade re-engages for plowing.
well does the rubber cutting edge and box ends hold up?
The rubber cutting edge is 1" thick and 6" high, and is
made of a hard rubber compound. This has been tested and proven
to provide years of service. It can be replaced relatively inexpensively.
is the warranty?
The plow has a 1-year limited warranty.

Yes, the plow can be easily transferred to another vehicle, all
you need is a front receiver hitch.
